Our current season




August 1-3, 2014

Shakespeare’s fantastical tale of mortal and immortal lovers lost in a bewitched Athenian wood. A favorite production for fans of the Bard all over the world, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a true romantic comedy set in the picturesque surroundings of Ryerson Woods. It is the story of young lovers, who may not realize their hearts are not their own to give. When the fairies of the forest send the mischievous Puck to apply a magical love potion, untold chaos ensues! 

Bring a blanket and picnic dinner to enjoy this beloved classic by William Shakespeare outside under the canopy at Ryerson Woods. Presented through a collaboration between Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods, Citadel Theatre and Lake County Forest Preserves.

Thank you to all the wonderful guests, volunteers, actors, committee members, workers, officers, celebrants, musicians, performers and partiers that made Saturday's Midsummer Night's Dream Gala a smashing success! It was so good to see so many people out to support Citadel, well over 300 in all, working in support of our mission to bring our art to Lake Forest and Lake County. Thanks to your support this fundraiser was easily the most successful in the history of the theatre.
